Wild Roots Nature Program For Ages 3-6

Wild Roots is an alternative to preschool as you know it.  Wild Roots is an outdoor-based early childhood education program for children ages 3-6. Our program offers an immersive experience in nature with a play-based approach to learning. Our flexible outdoor learning environment allows for an emergent curriculum, with teachers acting as guides, noticing each child’s observations and interests. 

Wild Roots is not a licensed preschool and operates under CDEC’s single-skill exemption. Our curriculum is designed to focus on specific weekly single-skills related to a monthly theme that follows the seasons and rhythms of the Earth. Monthly offerings build upon one another, allowing the school community to grow and strengthen. Classes are offered in 3-week or 4-week (monthly) sessions, and the typical day runs from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., with three registration options: Monday-Friday, Monday/Wednesday/Friday, or Tuesday/Thursday.
